Maybe someone can answer a question that I have about music that I use in my family/friends DVD photo slideshows that I create with Nero. Just a little background info first; I create these for fun and just to be happy with family/friends reactions to the DVD photo slideshows that I create. I add in music from CDs I own to add another neat little touch. Usually related to the "atmosphere" that is in the photos. The other day I showed my most recent DVD slide show at the family Easter gathering and my brother-in-law stated that my production was better than one that his friend had done for his wife as Christmas present of which he paid $100 for. My brother-in-law also said that the 1 hour-long slide show had the same song looped through out the entire show. Everyone at the party then told me that I should start making these as a side business, but I just laughed it off. My question is what type of copyright issues is there concerning music when using it home movie/slide show with the goal of selling that production? Can't be legal can it? For now I plan to keep on making these as a hobby for whoever I can make the time for and nothing more. Family members have shared my slide shows with others and have been asked, "How much would he charge to make me one?", and they have no answer. If I make a DVD photo slide show/home movie with background copyrighted music, can I sell that slide show?
